For me right now it's not even dreaming of my dream home.
It's dreaming of not having the restrictions of living overseas in Europe.
CASE IN POINT: repurposed furniture. LOVE IT.
I'd rather have a house full of garage sale/thrift store/Craigslist finds than brand new furniture from IKEA. But I've had a really hard time finding thrift stores/etc. around here. Not to mention that we live in stairwell apartments which make it difficult to navigate any piece of furniture up to our second floor. Oh yah, and the fact that I am husbandless.
ONE thick legged kitchen table: repurposed into a desk
ONE old rustic armoire: repurposed into a storage cabinet for office
ONE old dresser: repurposed into more storage for an office
GOTS TO HAVE...
ONE MORE old dresser: repurposed into entry way table with storage
